Now this was a fun week. I’ve never even pulled a pint before and never been behind a bar so I was learning from scratch. Hopefully the locals will agree that I pulled it off. I enjoyed the free snack each shift and the entire atmosphere was great. It picked up later in the week and I liked being tested and thrown into the deep end. Pub life is a hard life but a good life.
